What are muscle spasms?
Almost everyone gets a muscle cramp at one time or another during their lifetime. The key is to know what is the potential cause and how can you prevent a muscle spasm from continuing to occur. Defined as "an involuntary contraction of one or more muscles," the cramps that suddenly creep in are oftentimes referred to as 'charley horses.'
Athletes tend to suffer from a spasm when they've gone into overdrive with their sport. Sedentary people also feel a muscle spasm when either their diet is lacking in a specific nutrient, or their body isn't accustomed to movement on a regular basis. Our chiropractic team handles every aspect of your wellness care through several recommended modalities.
Muscle cramps tend to arrive without warning, yet are severely uncomfortable. What you do for relief and how to detect their potential cause is something we educate our patients about at Anchor Health & Wellness Center.
